Manga artist Misako Rocks! is a challenger and a woman of passion.

Despite being raised in a conservative family in Kazo, Saitama Prefecture, with father and son police officers, her life has been full of adventure.

She has worked as a puppeteer in New York, experienced homeless life, lived with a lesbian couple, and wed an American man and divorced. But she kept challenging new things to reach where she is now — the first Japanese manga artist whose comic books have been published in English across the United States.
